For whatever the Olympics is, We will need more than a week to do it. Previous winners need to see the post and everyone is on vacation. I really want more than 2 or 3 competitors (even though that would prolly guarantee I lose lol). It would be more fun with more of the monthly winners participating.

The end has come.

The final challenge of this year's Ancient Trials 2017 Tournament has yielded in interesting not 1, but 2 split winners for the month of August. Congratulations @andydabeast and @sushine1 for sharing the dual-crown this month! Normally a split decision would result in some form of tie-breaker; however, with the ZWC fast approaching in a few days, there is not enough room for a separate challenge or exact formula to consider a breaker.

 

With that being said, the end of the Ancient Trials for the year has yielded a mighty list of official Olympics contestants in our Champion pool. The current Champions-To-Be are:

This means we had a total of 6 contestants in our Champion Pool, and two more available slots...this means an upcoming Wildcard mini-bracket to determine which two lucky yet unfortunate souls have a chance to compete among the best of the best. We're be plucking them out of their respective dimensions very soon.

 

Now, let's move on to what you've all been waiting for...

 

2zz6sr8.jpg

Welcome, one and all, to the 2017 Call of Duty Zombies 2nd Annual tournament, the "Zombies Olympics"! The Z-Olympics (as we just normally call it around here) is an annual event where slayers from all regions of the world come to compete online in extremely difficult yet innovative challenges set forth by the Overlords and Controllers of the multiverse to determine who among them will earn the title of Champion against the others. The official tournament lasts for 3 weeks, and will test all your slaying abilities throughout several Zombies maps. Oh, did we mention there is a grand prize for each Champion?

 

How to Enter

 

The Z-Olympics contains two competition pools - the Champion and the Slayer pool. The Champion pool consists solely of past Champions from the Ancient Trials tournament and potentially a few wild cards. These players have earned their spot through 6-7 months of antagonizing torture from the Overlords with very specific challenges, allowing them to enter the highest ranks possible for a larger prize. 3 of the most difficult challenges possible will determine the winner.

 

The Slayer pool is available to all of the public, and requires no barrier to entry other than the ability to record gameplay. Players will compete against everyone for the best score in each challenge using our previous scoring system in the Ancient Trials tournaments. Unlike the Champion pool, there is no contestant limit, so it's a free-for-all kind of madness. Like the Champion pool, however, 3 challenges will determine the winner. 

 

Game Requirements

 

In order to successfully compete in the Z-Olympics, players must have each of the following items:

  • Xbox One / Playstation 4 / PC
  • Black Ops 3 - all DLCs including Zombies Chronicles
  • Gameplay recording equipment (such as an Elgato, capture device, Twitch stream recording, Game DVR, etc)
  • Twitch or YouTube account to upload gameplay videos on
  • At least 1-2 hours of free time in a given week to perform each challenge
  • A working email to contact players by for results, important updates, and more

Failure to have any of these items will result in scores not being counted in the tournament.

 

The Point System

 

For those unfamiliar with the Ancient Trials, we used a direct approach to scoring each players using ranking points. The first place score would receive a score of 4 points, second highest 3 points, third highest 2 points, etc etc. In the Slayer pool, the points will instead range up to a maximum of 5. It is highly possible to receive a score of 0 if a player fails to be in the Top 5 of a given challenge. In the Champion pool, the maximum points given will be 3 per challenge since the number of players is significantly smaller.

 

At the end of each challenge, our Z-Olympics committee will determine who has what rank at each segment of the tournament and post it on this site. Each contestant who signs up for the tournament will also receive an email blast from us highlighting the scores, just in case we have slayers constantly on the move.

 

Prizes and Rewards

 

This information will be coming on Monday August 20th, 2017. Stay tuned - there will be Divinium involved as well as cash prizes.

 

Rules and Guidelines

 

Each tournament and challenge we offer contains special rules that must be abided by. Failure to comply with the rules will determine in your score being voided and possible permanent banning from the Z-Olympics all-together. We don't have many rules (because we have a lot of faith in our players), but please carefully read the following guidelines:

  • Each player must show the leaderboard pop-up screen at the beginning of each challenge. This is an important verification step. Failure to do so will result in your submission not being recorded.
  • Only 1 submission video per challenge is allowed. We do not accept duplicates, regardless if the score changes.
  • Cheating in the form of performing glitches is prohibited in all challenges.
  • The use of non-Classic Gobblegums is not allowed unless specified otherwise.
  • All video segments must one continuous length. This means no split-recordings are allowed.
  • Your gameplay cannot be substituted by another player.
  • Pausing in your video is allowed, but must remain in a continuous recording.

Registration Information

 

Due to our association with the Zombies World Championship, the exact date of registration is TBA. We are projecting for the information to come online beginning on Monday August 20th, 2017. All players will be required to complete a Google Form that will give them entry to the competition. Please be consistently checking your emails once you register so you don't miss any deadlines or important info.

 

May the best slayers of this realm survive.

@InfestLithium I'm in it.... but it would be nice to have a longer time frame seeing I'm moving in 2 weeks. But between the relocation process and getting my internet reconnected, only 1 week to submit doesnt seem likely especially with my daughter starting school. Two weeks per challenge I could manage....

I have the time but I want everyone else to have the time too. I second this.

I agree I want everyone whose participating to have plenty of time to do the challenge. So increasing the time frame is good with me!

I will allow extension of each challenge to two weeks instead of one. Plus, given the end of the ZWC1, I will have time to make it happen, haha.

Yes! We were involved in the fan experience and even overlay graphics. Also provided the Mystery Box loot crates as well as the Staff of Ice prop. Had been working on everything since July 5th, hence my busy-ness. :sweat_smile:
